No Longer the Bionic Man

Yesterday I had the plate and the ten screws in my left tibia removed. I’m hoping that this results in less pain. Right now of course it’s the opposite.
Surgery is never fun but the staff at the Stanford Orthopedic Out Patient Surgery Center did an amazing job at making it as painless and comfortable as possible.

Some highlights from yesterday.

The surgery went really well, though the nausea from the going under from the anesthesia has been rough. Luckily the pain has been fairly manageable so far today.

I’m definitely missing the motorcycle already. I did get some good news on that front, sounds like I should only need two to three weeks before I’m walking and riding normally. Much faster than I was originally thinking.

I started riding motorcycles in 2006, and there is no going back. I've ridden more than 100,000 miles, most of it on a Ducati Monster, and despite setbacks and murderous BMW's I'm loving every mile.
